readMultiple with ExternalEntry: differences between 6.0/6.6 and 7.1

The following code works in v6.0 and v6.6: ExternalEntry searchUid = new ExternalEntry(new String[] { dataUid }); Entry[] entries = (Entry[])gigaSpace.readMultiple(searchUid, Integer.MAX_VALUE); ExternalEntry entry = (ExternalEntry)entries[0];

See also [ http://www.gigaspaces.com/wiki/displa... ] after which I believe the code above was mimicked.

The readMultiple method signature in v7.1 is: <t> T[] readMultiple(T template, int maxEntries)

However, in v7.1 the code above fails at run time with "java.lang.ClassCastException: [Ljava.lang.Object;" .

ClassCastException is also thrown when using this (think T = ExternalEntry): ExternalEntry[] entries = gigaSpace.readMultiple(searchUid, Integer.MAX_VALUE);

Modifying the code like this seems to fix the problem: Object[] entries = gigaSpace.readMultiple(searchUid, Integer.MAX_VALUE); ExternalEntry entry = (ExternalEntry)entries[0];

Is this a known problem in v7.1?

Also, should we change the code over to use readById?

Thanks, Vanio

Please change the code to use readById and readByIds. See:

There is no need to use the ExternalEntry any more.

OK - readById/readByIds it is then (I understand readByIds is available since 7.1.1).

Thank you, Shay!
